NewImage

Calling all inventors! Popular Science is looking for creations to feature in their May 2015 inventions issue! Check out their site to get more info on the contest.

With the rise of open-source software and hardware, 3-D printing, and crowdfunding, it’s easier than ever to be a maker. Over the past year, some inventors have created potentially world-changing projects.

Popular Science wants to celebrate these amazing builders, tinkerers, and DIY enthusiasts. That’s why we’re featuring them in our annual Invention Awards issue. And to find the best of the best, we need you to submit your amazing creations.

We want to know about game-changing innovations developed by independent inventors (not big corporate R&D labs). We’re looking for people who are designing revolutionary tools, crowdfunding fantastically useful gadgets, or building life-saving products and technologies. Their creations solve real-world problems in interesting and original ways.

Head to Popular Science to read the rules and how to enter!
